Among them, ultra-low and ultra wide flatbed trucks belong to special vehicles. The characteristics of low column trucks: The three directional truck railings can be opened for convenient loading and unloading operations, so they are often used for some goods that use forklifts, cranes, and other operations; Cover the goods with rain cloth to prevent damage from rain and other factors; Usually, ropes or specialized tools (such as steel coil saddles) are used to secure goods. ③. Gaolan Truck High column truck are a type of vehicle that falls between low column truck and box truck. Although they have more enclosed compartments compared to low column truck, they still require rain cloth for protection. It can be divided into: semi enclosed high fence and fully enclosed high fence. This type of transport vehicle is suitable for the transportation of most products and is widely used. ④.

By using containers to transport goods, they can be loaded directly at the shipper's warehouse and unloaded at the consignee's warehouse, without the need to remove and replace the goods from the container. During transportation, there is no need to move the goods inside the box, and they can be directly replaced. It can be quickly loaded and unloaded, and can be easily transferred from one transportation vehicle to another, which is convenient and fast, and has a very large throughput. Chinese trucking
